Meet With an Academic Advisor

Before registering for classes, visit an advisor to discuss courses required for a major, understand your degree plan, and create a pathway to degree completion and success.

  • Unsure of what major to study? Visit an academic advisor to review degree plan options and the courses required.
  • Know where you want to go to school but aren’t sure of the classes to take? An academic advisor is familiar with degree requirements at Texas’ top public transfer institutions and can help you decide what to take and when.

No Appointment is necessary to see an advisor in Temple and in Taylor. For the Hutto center, call 512-759-5900 to schedule an appointment. Please feel free to walk-in anytime Monday through Thursday between 8 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. in the Fall/Spring or Monday through Thursday between 7:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. in the Summer.
